Whiplash: Serious Injury I

Here in Florida, a deputy was called by an emotionally distraught woman with a known history of mental illness and institutionalization.  She needed to know how to un-jam her handgun.  The deputy fixed her gun and she promptly shot herself to death.

 

Elsewhere someone called police to help a troubled autistic man at his home. The police were made aware of his illness.  He showed the police a knife and was promptly shot to death.  Our society is failing to treat and serve the mentally ill.  A large percentage of our prison population is mentally ill and many are killed on the street before even making it to jail. We must do better.
